4 lbs gone
Wednesday, May 17, 2017
I went to weigh today. The first weigh in since I joined Spark and I lost 4 lbs. Of course I'm thinking, "It is because you have been sick". Why do I allow negative thoughts to take over my thinking process?
I'm reading a book called "Battlefield of the Mind" and WOW I need this book!! I am such a negative person when I refer to myself and that is not what God intended! He wants me to see me the way He does.
So instead of saying, "I lost 4 lbs because I was sick." I am going to say, "I lost 4 lbs because I have been exercising and drinking my water like I should." I deserve to be happy about my weight loss and not scared that it is a fluke!
The lady that weighed me at the Dr.s office is trying to lose weight too. I found this out because I sorta had a "moment" before I stepped on the scale!!! I told her, "OK NOW, I am going to weigh, but I have been exercising and drinking water and I may be disappointed if I don't lose weight, so I'm just gonna close my eyes." She weighed me and said, "Good job." I looked down and it was 4 lbs gone! At that moment, before the negativity started, I thought, "WOW! I can do this!!! I lost 4 lbs!!!! I did GOOD!!!"
I told her about Spark and she may join!! She said its hard for her and I told her I knew. I gave her my # as well. There is another lady in the dr's office that is trying to lose weight too. So I'm thinking I got some weight loss buddies in the town I work in!
I CAN do this!!! I REALLY CAN!
